lyrics

mano buddhya hankara chittani naham
na cha shrotra jihve na cha ghrana netre
na cha vyoma bhumir na tejo na vayuh
chidananda rupah shivo’ ham, shivo’ ham

I am not mind, intellect, ego or memory;
not ears or tongue or smell or sight; not ether, air, fire, water or earth.
I am consciousness and bliss. I am Shiva! I am Shiva!

na punyam na papam na saukhyam na duhkham
na mantro na tirtham na veda na yajñah
aham bhojanam naiva bhojyam na bhokta
chidananda rupah shivo’ ham, shivo’ ham

I am not virtue or vice, pleasure or pain; not mantra, sacred place,
scripture or sacrifice; not the food, the eater or the act of eating.
I am consciousness and bliss. I am Shiva! I am Shiva!

apurvanam param nityam svayam jyotir niramayam
virajam param akasham dhruvam anandamavyayam

I am beyond all things. I am everlasting, self-luminous,
taintless, and pure; immovable, blissful and imperishable.

aham nirvikalpo nirakara rupo
vibhutvachcha sarvatra sarvendriyanam
na chasangatam naiva muktir na meyah
chidananda rupah shivo’ ham, shivo’ ham

I am without thought, without form; I am all pervasive, I am beyond all senses;
I am not detachment or salvation or anything that could be measured.
I am consciousness and bliss. I am Shiva! I am Shiva!

--- Shankaracharya (788-820 a.d.)
